If you came across these, you would probably applaud.

WALKING AROUND IKEA and gazing on at some of the more ludicrous products is a fine tradition – and most people just let them slide by with a sarcastic comment.

But Jeff Wysaski of the Obvious Plant blog went one better – he printed out his own fake customer reviews and put them up in his local IKEA.

They made their way to Imgur just five hours ago and they’ve already been viewed nearly one million times.
